Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
The causes of motorcycle accidents vary and may include everything from negligent driving to defective brakes. Some of the cases we handle involve:
- Unmarked road hazards causing the bike to flip
- Defective brakes, chains, or motors
- Car drivers who fail to use turn signal blinkers
- Drivers who "fail to see" motorcyclists while changing lanes
- Failure to stop at a stop sign or red light
Even if you think you are partly at fault, our firm uses techniques that help maximize your claim to the fullest extent. Remember to never admit fault or speculate on who is at fault to law enforcement or your insurance agent. By using expert witnesses, accident reconstructionists, and other forensic team members, we are able to discover the cause of the accident and how it relates to your injuries. We then present this evidence in such a way that forces insurance companies to oblige to your claims.
Common Injuries in Motorcycle Crashes
Because of the relative lack of protection motorcyclists have in comparison with other drivers on the road, collisions often lead to serious injuries. In addition to soft tissue injuries, bruises, scrapes, contusions, and “road rash,” motorcyclists can be left with permanent impairment. Common catastrophic injuries include amputation, traumatic brain injury, spine injuries, paralysis, disfigurement, and more.
Because of the serious nature of these injuries, you may be entitled to damages to help you recover and move forward. Your claim for compensation may seek economic damages to cover the costs of your current or future medical and rehabilitative care, lost wages, and treatment for permanent disability. You may also seek non-economic damages for your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, and other issues, including wrongful death compensation if you lost a loved one in a crash.
Whatever your injuries, discuss your case with our motorcycle injury lawyers before considering any settlements from the insurance companies. We can help you seek the full and fair compensation you and your family may be entitled to.
